Arsenal picked up a win against Blackpool on Wednesday, and that is just what Unai Emery needed. The Gunners have been doing well in the Premier League, but a title charge may be a step too far this term. So, the opportunity of winning silverware in domestic cups cannot be undervalued.
Fortunately, the Arsenal team impressed, with most players putting in a strong performance.
However, one player that has drawn the ire of Arsenal fans is Petr Cech. The goalkeeper almost conceded a goal after a howler gifted possession back to Blackpool, and whilst he got away with that one, it didn’t go unnoticed amongst fans.
Indeed, many Arsenal fans have since sent a message to Unai Emery – they don’t want Cech to be anywhere close to the team against Liverpool.
Of course, with Bernd Leno now available, it’s clear that fans seriously prefer the German – and against Liverpool’s deadly attack, they clearly want him to be involved. Liverpool have been lethal going forward this season, and so Emery needs all the help he can get.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
@UnaiEmery_ Please don’t play Cech against Liverpool

Cech shouldn’t start that Liverpool game…. or any at all. Such a liability

I hope not to see Cech against Liverpool, conceding is part of his DNA. Stupid and silly mistakes always.

I will be absolutely amazed if Cech retains his starting position for the Liverpool game. Was a total liability today – no command of his box from set pieces, ridiculous decision making and so dreadful with the ball at his feet that he almost gave away a free goal. #ARSBPL
